John Boehner Posted A Video Of Him Mowing The Lawn For Some Reason

There’s a new video of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on his Instagram page and it’s a bit odd: it’s him mowing his lawn.

In the clip, Boehner revs up a lawn mower then crops some grass.

“I love green grass,” Boehner said near the end of the clip.

The speaker’s website also features the clip of him at his home in West Chester, Ohio cutting grass.

“Back in January, Speaker Boehner mentioned on The Tonight Show that he likes to cut his own grass,” a caption with the video clip on the website read. “With spring having sprung – in title, if not in reality – we went through our archives and found footage of the Speaker working on his yard in West Chester, Ohio.”

Boehner aide Kevin Smith said the video was meant as a new way to reach out to the American people.

“We are constantly looking for new ways to connect directly with the American people. This is just one example,” Smith said in an email to TPM on Friday.
